We always like coming to visit you because you always had plans whether it be going to the flea market or going to some of the events in Connersville or somewhere else. I wished we could have seen more of you but with are busy schedules it was hard but when we did it was good to spend time as a family. You will be missed but you will have a special place in my heart. I'm sorry that I wasn't able to see you one more time but I want to remember you as you were. I love you dad

I went to school with Bobby. He was always cracking jokes as a child and teenager. Later, as an adult, he worked at Stant's with my sister and I was able to get reacquainted with him. He talked to my Sis a lot on the phone and was often a source of company for her. She will definitely miss him. My husband and I talked to him at Liberty Bell restaurant several times. I thank him for coming to my mom's memorial visitation. Bob was very nice and I loved to talk with him.
